The latest to follow me home....
What - No Way - now you have a matching pair!?
Very nice - I’m super Jealous.
Good to see.
Year of the bike, kickstart model?? Nice bike to be follow home
Kick start yep - 2001 - rescued it from a not so appreciative former owner - had to be done
Also rescue mine 2004 re from a previus owner which neclected the bike…..give the bike a good clean an service , New Chain and sprocket, tires and rebuilt the Wheel, lot of lose spokes. Also installed New decal set…...
Do the have Kick and E-starter on the TTR?
Only Electric starter:)
But the bike (TTR) has a Kicker. I just can't see if there is a electric starter to. And the rear shot picture shows a Starter button.
The TT600R (A6YCF) is the genuine kickstart only model.
The buttons on the bars are:
Left side: Lights, indicators and horn (red)
Right side: Engine kill switch.
Now on the other hand, this one (TT600RE) does have the e-start (but no kicker)...
I live in the United States I had a 1983 TT 600 very nice bike, great memories of that bike, Are they still making these TT 600 Yamaha overseas? What year are these bikes? Thanks...
this is what I was riding today
2003 TT600R / 2004 TT600RE
Sad to say both models ceased production about that time. Next nearest thing is a DR650SE.
That 200 would be about the weight of TT600 engine...
Great looking bike you have! Mine happens to be originally the same ;-)
The Acerbis on front fork, do they sit on the original fork protector without any modifications? I would like to find the same.
Yes they FIT perfekt under the original fork protection without any modification.. Would like to SEE your bike. Picture please
Good to know. Thanks, Acerbis located and ordered.
This is the look of my teenage time dream (big thumper) on arrival day (leaking fork seal, worn out chain and sprockets, cables stuck etc.):
modifications so far are belgian Wilbers shock on back, greek Belgarda fork, polish R length side stand (= 280 mm travel), Batanga luggage rack, chinese levers, footrest and folding mirrors, slovenian tank. Still to come are gel seat (Poland & China). Truly international ;-)
Target with this winter time modifications is a tour to Alps and gravel roads in July. If the borders are open? Otherwise, TET in Finland.
Nice bike!!! Where do you order the fuel tank? IT is on the to do list, to short fuel range.My pannier rack is one of A BMW gs1200, modified.....search the Internett to find one, but I never found one specifik to ttr
I found my tank from eBay. I was not ready to pay 360€ and managed to find one cheaper. Off-the-road.de has them. They also have pannier rack’s but you don’t need one anymore. Mine is custom made to this bike since Batanga is a small company and they/he did not have a model. Had to drive to Latvia to get it done. Hand made
Thanks for reply . Have to find a use tank, not ready to pay 360€ from Off The Road
Acerbis tanks available here....
Have always got my aftermarket tanks from here and they ship internationally.
Looking good......I note you have a non standard extended / unvented front fender that looks like it would restrict a fair amount of flow over the head/ cylinder. Keep in mind these TTR's standard will run very hot oil temps if doing any sort of slow tracks or high speed running in hot weather. As I have found on mine, is easy to see 130/ 140C oil temps which is not good. I suspect is due to the poor air flow positioning of the oil tank in combination with the solid bash plate. My XT600 3TB running in the same conditions will run10-15C cooler, likely due to the oil in frame and no air flow restricting bash plate. If you are going to run the bike in hot temps I would get the shorter, vented style fender back on.
